Man the left and its claims of racism are getting old. They are the ones hyper focused on race. Not liking Omar has NOTHING to do with race. It has EVERYTHING to do with her anti American, anti Semitic views.

So why is it our business if a Norwegian and Japanese tanker are attacked overseas by Iran (supposedly...which was a lie)?

You believe in the United States intruding in other nation’s internal affairs. You’re not a non interventionist.

The problem is that Trump and his base make themselves look like racists and exactly what the "fear" is on the left. My problem is that I do not subscribe or support Trumps fear/rhetoric/racist undertones but I have a great deal of objection to the left's policies.


We are making a dynamic where there is no room left in the middle any longer. You either support the left's socialist policies or you go down the alt-right racist hole. What we effictively are doing is creating the opportunity for a 3rd party or candidate here. Not in the image of Gary "Aleppo" Johnson or the Green party but of a legitimate 3rd party to run government.
I was on board with a 3rd party for the Perot run in 1992 and have never really changed my opinion.
Welcome aboard.

Free speech in America not just the kind you agree with.

Absolutely. Do they not see the hypocrisy? They twist themselves into pretzels trying to paint everyone else (on the right) as a racist when it simply isn't true, and then they rush in to defend a blatant anti-Semite (on the left). We even have a liberal on this forum, and I'm not naming names, who has said he respects Farrakhan, and that Farrakhan's attitudes toward Jews isn't his problem. Yet, he will rail on and on against so-called racists.
